Goalkeeper Jack Butland has dismissed claims he has asked Stoke for a transfer
Stoke have dropped into the relegation zone with just one win in eight Premier League encounters, but Butland has insisted new manager Paul Lambert has the squad redoubling their efforts in training.
‘I’m really pleased with the improvement in performances recently and we are finally feeling as though we are in games and could be picking up points,’ Butland told Stoke’s official club website.
Butland joined Stoke from Birmingham in 2013, and is expected to make the England squad for the summer’s World Cup in Russia.
